Probation Violations in ArizonaBy Suzuki Law Offices, LLC

If you have been convicted of a misdemeanor or felony in Arizona, part of your penalties may involve probation. When you are placed on probation, you will be required to follow the terms and conditions set up by the court. Failure to do so can result in a violation of your probation, which can land you in jail, result in revocation of your probation, an extension of your probation, or added and more restrictive conditions to the terms you are already subject to.
Numerous ways to violate your probation exist. These may include a failure to pay fines, court costs, or other fees, an failure to pay restitution to a victim, failure to complete terms of community service, failure to complete an alcohol, drug, or anger management education, treatment, or counseling program, being found in possession of drugs or weapons, failure to obey a restraining order, failure to appear at court appearances or failure to report to a probation officer. If you are found committing new crimes, that is also a serious probation violation.
If you have been charged with a probation violation, it is important to handle it as soon as possible. You may be given a second chance by the probation officer. Once a bench warrant has been issued for your arrest, however, you will be subject to whatever a judge decides in court.
